      The future of the JD Forum   07/31/18

      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

Attwood SpringLift Stainless Steel Gas Springs : How do you know what length is suitable. Example, lid is 83 x 23 inches weighting 150 lbs.?

You need to measure the attachment points in the closed position from bracket to bracket.  Then measure the open distance from bracket to bracket.  That gives you the closed length and the open length.  You would need one with enough pound rating to hold the hatch open.
